Excerpt: In terms of sound quality these are great, although they are getting pricey. This is my second pair, the first lasting about 2 years before the mini-plug imploded. This second pair I bought October 2011 - 8 months ago - and one of the channels just went on, most likely the mini-plug again as I've...
Excerpt: Great sound. Easy to Carry. One fatal flaw. I have had three sets of these, each developed the same problem. The mini plug connection is vulnerable to damage, resulting in one channel becoming intermittent. Wonderful product, until this problem crops up.
Did not last as long as their predecessor, the PX100
23 June 2014
Summary: After many years of use, my beloved PX100's broke (at the plastic and screw joint, which connected the headphones to the headband). When I needed to replace them, the PX100's were a thing of the past, so I bought a pair of these PX100-II's instead.
Summary: The quality of these headphones doesn't do justice to the usual high standards of German manufacturing. They come in a very nice case which is made of plastic so brittle; it will inevitably break if you drop it.
Summary: They sound great, they're comfy, compact, discrete looking and don't annoy my fellow commuters with too much sound escaping but... Its seems they're just not robust enough for purpose. Mine lasted six months, my wife's only five...
Summary: In the last 9 months i have had 2 pairs of these headphones having only paid for one as Amazon messed up the order and took a while to deliver. They are ideal and great sounding for listening to my Ipod, until that is they pack up.
Summary: im somewhat bemused by the set of headphones i received. Many reviews refer to the better treble and bass in comparison to the px-200 II. Well comparing to my px-200 II treble was totally absent.
Summary: Like many I bought these headphones as their sound wass widely reputed to be excellent...which it is. Having had one pair which lasted a year or so I bought another pair because the left channel stopped working.
Summary: I ordered these awhile back out of curiosity, seeing as I owned the porta pros which sound outstanding but don't have the best build design, and noticed the PX100s had a far superior build and looked way more comfortable.
